Design Goals

The document outlines the core design goals for the SkyWalking Infra E2E project.

  • Support various E2E testing requirements in SkyWalking main repository with other ecosystem repositories.
  • Support both docker-compose and KinD to orchestrate the tested services under different environments.
  • Be language-independent as much as possible, users only need to configure YAMLs and run commands, without writing code.


  • This framework is not involved with the build process, i.e. it won’t do something like mvn package or docker build, the artifacts (.tar, docker images) should be ready in an earlier process before this;
  • This project doesn’t take the plugin tests into account, at least for now;
